Transcript LAMBDA SLIDES SHOW MARCH On Tuesday, November 27 (the anniversary of the assassination of Harvey Milk), Austin Lambda gave a slide presentation of the National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights. The presentation was held at the Gaslight Theatre on W. kth Street. About 100 people attended. Response to the presentation was extremely positive and Austin Lambda is planning a second showing in January. Tentative plans are to hold the show again at the Gaslight, this time on Tuesday, January 15 at 8 pm. Watch for posters announcing final plans. The U5-minute presentation, involving 210 slides and a sound-track, was a month in the making. The creators of the show, Michael Fernandes and Cherese Campo, gathered slides and assorted tapes from among the 200 Austinites who vent to the March on Washington in October. Over ^00 slides were loaned to Lambda for the presentation, from which the final 210 were chosen and assembled into the story as it is presented. More than three hours of unedited tape was sorted through and edited into a U5-minute sound track which attempts to portray in sound what the slides present visually. The sound is difficult to understand in spots—and some of the slides are less than perfect in quality. But audience response was a prolonged and thunderous applause—and rightfully so. The slides, taken primarily by amateur photographers, are beautiful visions of the event. The sound, recorded from the midst of the 200,000-person crowd by a hand-held microphone, is the element which lifts the presentation from the level of a good home- show to an artful immersion into the experience of the March. As one viewer put it, "The sections that were difficult for me to understand added to the sense of immediacy for me—like being in the middle of such a crowd—it made the event very present." Everyone seemed to agree that the presentation was more than a viewing. It succeeded in bringing home the experience. The original slides have been duplicated and returned to the people who donated them. Austin Lambda now can offer the presentation permanently—and hopefully will do so in the future to college classrooms, civic groups, and others who would learn from the experience. No one should miss the January showing. Many of us will be back for seconds. GUEST APPEARANCE BY NEW YORK, NEW YORK'S D. J.
